“Pleasantly surprised.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We chose this hotel because it was located close to where we had to go while we were in Calgary. This is an older hotel but has been completely renovated. The place was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with enough variety. I would, highly, recommend this place.

Spent the weekend at the Days Inn and would not stay there again. Checked in Friday evening.
Front desk clerk seemed a bit rattles so it took a few minutes longer than needed. Called back to the front deck for dining information in the area and found the front desk too busty too talk she requested to call back. 30 minutes passed no call back. We had found the information we needed on the internet.
Saturday morning no HOT water for shower. Staff acknowledge there was a problem and would let manager know about the problem. Went for breakfast and heard a number of guest complaining about the same problem. At breakfast (it was busy) the pastries were still frozen, garbage was over-flowing, ,out of waffle batter and the room was a bit of a mess.Had hot water by around noon.
As mentioned by someone in a review the comforter is to heavy for the room temperature which we couldn't control and the sheet was not enough.
The noise in the halls was loud until about ten and then it was fine.
Sunday had hot water but breakfast was still not very good.
Never saw or heard from a manager during our stay. It appears that there is just the front desk staff to field all comments and deal with any issues that arise. It is very difficult with only one person on duty to handle it all.
Front desk staff were pleasant and tried their best to deal with the problems.
Had a fridge, microwave and nice tv. A channel listing would have been a nice touch.

I would like to apologize that your stay was anything less than perfect. I assure you we take the comfort of all guests very seriously. You are correct, we are a small hotel and there is not always a manager on duty. I was informed about the hot water, it appears what happened was we had 2 large teams in the hotel that ended up showering at the same times; this is a very rare occurrence. The hot water had replenished within an hour. We do have a breakfast room attendant on duty during the hours that we serve breakfast, it's disappointing to hear your description but very pleased you brought it to my attention to be used for training purposes. The heat and air conditioning is controlled by a thermostat on the wall, we are pleased to say that they are being replaced before the New Year with a more user and eco-friendly version. Thank you for the note about the TV listing, we are actually having our guest directories printed and there will be a TV channel listing available there. Great to hear the staff did a good job at keeping the noise down after hotel quiet time which is 11pm-7am. Thank you for your review, we hope you choose to give us another chance in the future!

Was a busy week in Calgary and didn't want to pay what some of my regular stops were costing so decided to try this Days Inn. Great location, close to downtown, seems to be newly renovated.

Very good staff at checkin and checkout. The continental breakfast was more than adequate and the gym was small but sufficient.

Room was more than large enough, comfortable bed, good TV and bathroom was great. It even had a fridge and microwave.

Great place to stay for business close to downtown or in the west end of Calgary

Room Tip: It is a little noisy on the "street" side.
